I For An Eye is a multi-room exhibition at Made in NY Media Center by IFP about everyday surveillance, a probe into the permanently visible life of the modern person.
As our temporal and digital selves become interchangeable, the question of whether we are ‘being watched’ is completely trite. In this presentation of Sarah Lawrence College’s Innovation Lab taught by Hans Tammen, the artists were brought together by their shared interest in the subtly oppressive infiltration of everyday surveillance to bring about a truly collaborative installation. Coming from various academic and artistic disciplines (journalists, filmmakers, photographers, composers, etc.), the artists intend to investigate the modern person’s state of permanent visibility, and the moral ambiguity therein.
Join us at the reception and performance on Saturday May 2nd, 2015 at 2pm for an audio-visual exploration of the space between victim and perpetrator, surveyor and specimen.
